Working down the street I have given DJ's more than a few tries. Every order I have made or witnessed is like they have never taken an order before. This is across the board from owner to trainee. By this I mean they never seem ready to take the order and are constantly asking customers to repeat themselves or "hold... More

There should be lines at DJs. They serve the best pancakes in town and their breakfast menu is fabulous. It's also a great place for a comfort food dinner and the people make you feel right at home.

We frequent DJ's often for great takeout sandwiches. Quality food expertly prepared. Friendly family place to go for casual food - they have a lovely cozy area for dining. Great friendly owners !

I first went to DJ's when it first opened up in Asbury. It was pre-expansion, when it was more of a tiny, hidden gem in the busy downtown area. The food is incredible here — seriously, everything I've eaten at DJ's has been lip-smackingly delicious. There is a sit-down area to eat, plus a deli counter where you can grab... More

I have been going to DJ's for a few years now; every time I stop in whether it is to sit down and eat, pick up a to go lunch order or just for coffee, the owner DJ says hello and welcomes me by name. DJ's is an excellent and consistent destination in Asbury Park, for me it is one... More

So let me start off by saying DJ is the kind of guy that you meet and immediately wish he'd be YOUR best friend. But he's too feisty and humorous for just the normal hokey pokey run of the mill blandos! No, this is the man who is the brain child of the Cheesecake Burrito. Yes, cheesecake burrito my friends....

Just found out about this place; actually read other reviews on Trip Advisor. This place has a nice deli type market with a nice restaurant attached. We opted to be seated inside near a window. We had two different sandwiches and both were great. The server was very attentive and we look forward to returning.

I loved my breakfast! And what a great value! The American Breakfast included 2 eggs, 2 pancakes, 2 slices of bacon, sausage, home fries, toast and coffee. All for 9 bucks!!! Everything was cooked beautifully and the pancakes were light and fluffy! The breakfast was served in a cast iron frying pan that made for an interesting presentation. Service was... More

We really enjoyed our dinner here last night. We had heard about their great wings, but loved our other choices as well. The meatloaf with mushroom gravy accompanied by mashed potatoes and zucchini/ squash medley was true comfort food! It came with a crisp fresh salad. The pastrami sandwich was one of the best I've ever had. The bread which... More
